Is Body Contouring Permanent?

Beautiful young mixed race couple standing close to each other Body contouring restores tone and definition to the frame. At Genesis Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we offer a range of body contouring options, including:

  • Liposuction to remove stubborn deposits of fat
  • Abdominoplasty to eliminate saggy skin from the abdomen
  • Body lift procedures to tone and trim the thighs, buttocks, stomach, and arms
  • Buttock augmentation to improve the dimensions of the bottom

Several body contouring options may be needed to optimize results in some cases, such as post-bariatric-surgery body contouring or mommy makeover surgery. These more comprehensive procedures may also include feminine rejuvenation and breast surgery to address all concerns.

Body contouring offers lasting results. How long-lasting, exactly, is dependent on you. Excised skin will not magically grow back. Fat, once removed, does not simply reappear. However, new fat will accumulate, and the skin will stretch to accommodate it if steps aren’t taken to maintain your body contouring results.

You Don’t Have to be a Vegan Triathlete to Maintain Results

Fortunately, maintaining body contouring results is relatively simple. You don’t have to go to extremes to prevent weight gain and fat accumulation. You do, however, need to commit to leading a healthy and active lifestyle.

Each of us is different. Your metabolism and nutritional needs are not the same as anyone else. To maintain your results, you will need to find a healthy eating plan that works for you.

Forget yo-yo dieting and fads like Keto; these have well-documented health risks, including increased risks for heart disease, liver failure, kidney problems, and metabolic syndrome. Instead, opt for a sustainable and healthy diet focusing on nutrient-dense foods that keep you energized and full. If you struggle with eating habits, work with a nutritionist who can help you customize a plan that will actually work.

Like diet, exercise needs are different for each individual, but most people do fine with daily cardio and weekly weight training. Again, these needn’t be extreme. Think swimming, cycling, daily walks, group sports, yoga classes, and isotonic and isometric exercises like calisthenics. Working with a trainer who offers several modalities can help you find a routine that works with your schedule and needs.

It shouldn’t be terribly difficult to maintain your body contouring results for a lifetime, but it will require some effort. During your consultation, we can discuss this with you in greater detail to help you determine if body contouring is the right solution for your needs.
